“The work of a psychologist with this category of women is the work of eroding growing doubt. A woman has come to register for an abortion; she’s already made a choice, a decision, but she always has remaining doubts—something on the other side of the scale. The work of a psychologist is to uncover these doubts, ‘to give them’ Which way the balance is tipped we cannot know, because the woman has made a decision. But, all the same, you can try to ‘shatter’ a woman’s bad confidence.”

The Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision allowed for the slaughter of an estimated 58,586,256 innocent lives. California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont and Washington passed physician assisted suicide laws between 2008 and 2015. California is the most recent addition to this list. Though the right to life has been unprotected for our weakest citizens the rights of Californians to give voice and power to those lives have not yet been denied.
